We made it to Friday, which means it’s time for my latest Reading RoundUp! Our schedule was blissfully empty this week resulting in lots of time for reading and Netflix 🙂 The over 90 degree days also encouraged evenings spent indoors. I’d prefer cooler weather, but I can’t complain about added incentive to read/blog!
Let’s check out what’s on my list!
Work Book (for lunch time reading):
Fall of Giants by Ken Follett – An epic historical fiction novel set in Europe during WWI that follows different families from different social classes and backgrounds. This book is a monster, but it reads quickly since there’s a ton of action and drama. Follett does a great job showing historical events through the eyes of various individuals.
Sleeping Giants by Sylvain Neuvel – My Book of the Month selection focuses on the United States’ discovery of body parts for a giant robot which were buried underground. The story is told through interviews, diary entries, and recordings. It’s fascinating so far! Also, did anyone else know this is part of a series??
The Little Prince by Antoine de Saint-Exupery – Ok ok, I said I was going to start reading this last week but I still haven’t gotten around to it. I promise I’ll start it soon! It’s such a short book haha.
Glass Sword by Victoria Aveyard – The second book in the Red Queen series is just as action-packed as the first. It’s not terribly well written and it steals plot / characters from other young adult novels, but it’s still entertaining.
From Around the Web:
Harry Potter Engagement Photo Session – Hmmm, we do have our engagement session coming up in the fall…
Travel Update – For all my travel lovers, Boarding Area just launched a new website featuring a vast collection of travel bloggers all in one place offering reviews and travel tips. This is a shameless plug because Jay is one of the bloggers!!
